Mangaluru, Oct 31, 2016: Addressing a gathering after releasing the 3rd edition of the book ’Aahuti - The Untold stories of Sacrifices in Kerala’, which contains stories collected by Kerala BJP workers about the victims of communist atrocities, organised by the Mangaluru Chapter of Citizens Council at Sanganikethana on Oct 30, Sunday.
Actor-turned-BJP MP Suresh Gopinathan. stressed on the need to end bloodshed - apparently referring to the ongoing clashes between activists of different parties in Kerala.
Recalling earlier incidents of clashes in Kerala, he said communism in Kerala was full of ’green’ and not ’red’, when he was a member of the Student Federation of India during his college days. Supporting his party’s ideology, he said that the RSS and the BJP cadres are disciplined and have kept their cool for the greater good of the nation, but the Communists in Kerala are weakening the life structure by their demonic deeds. This unrest, which has sprouted out of ill-reasoned killings has to be suppressed, he said. In the political race, one must run and win the race and not kill and pose as winners, he added.
Sadanandan Master, who had both his legs chopped off as a retaliation by Communists, said that one must raise voice against such barbaric acts. The Communists have killed 87 people and are responsible for many grievous injuries - his is only one example of communist brutality in Kerala. He commended the strength and fortitude of all those who have survived such attacks. He concurred with Gopinathan on the need for long-term peace in Kerala and that this kind of killings and fascism must be brought to an end.
MP Nalin Kumar Kateel was present. The members of eight families brutalised by Communist party were the special guests. Also present were Yuva Brigade leader Chakravarthi Sulibele and Citizen Council (Mangaluru chapter) president Sunil Anchan.
